Commonwealth Stadium Construction Update

Construction is coming along great at Commonwealth Stadium.  The new press boxes and suites are really starting to take shape, and the new player entrance tunnel is complete.  Looks like the recruiting room above the new student section is also in place.  The patio looks really cool.

It’s hard to tell from this aerial photo, but blue chair back seating has been placed on the sidelines now.  The facade outside of the stadium looks so much better, now that it’s almost complete.  No longer does Commonwealth Stadium look like a concrete skeleton.  

I’m sure everyone’s seen the new field design already.  It was released earlier this week in case you missed it.

Oops.  Sorry, that’s not it.  That’s the 1970’s “Power K” mid-field logo.  This was the most popular logo among fans when asked what the design should look like.  Instead, we got a weird, crooked K version of our current logo.

I guess it’s not that bad.  I do love the endzones.  Nonetheless, we are 16 weeks from kickoff!

    The mid-field logo should be on two light green panels, not two dark green panels. The logo would stand out better, and would be an easy fix.

    I usually don’t care about the uniforms, colors, lettering, dots, spots or whatever, but the poor little UK logo looks kinda pitiful. Im not sure what’s wrong with it but it could have fallen of the truck, got folded and ran over a dozen times and then someone tried to straighten it back out and just didn’t get it back right. I sure would like to see them upgrade that.

    Do not like the new logo! Very poor design. Why attempt to fix what isn’t broken? Love the checkerboard. We live in Knoxville (consider us on mission) so we have enjoyed all the whining and crying over the addition of the checkerboard in the design. Far be it for a UT grad or fan to do any research before they open their mouth and insert their foot!
